Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says the January market is a "nightmare", especially if you're team is at the wrong end of the table.
For this month's market, Redknapp says he won't be seeking to make any drastic changes.
"Oh, it's a nightmare," he said. "When you are at a struggling club you have got to do something to solve the problem. You have to take gambles because you are bottom of the league."
Redknapp, who has signed 19 players in the last five January transfer windows, continued: "Last time I took gambles. I brought [Jermain] Defoe back and [Robbie] Keane came back. I brought [Wilson] Palacios in and they turned us round. I brought better players in because that's what I had to do."
Reflecting on his return to Portsmouth in 2006, when he brought in five players mid-season, he said: "We were desperate. They had the worst team I have ever seen in the Premier League and I had to bring in five or six players. We rounded a few up from here, there and everywhere and we managed to stay up."
